It was the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 exploded and took it to a permanent end, but today what we witness is from Apple’s iPhone 7 caught fire. This seems like Apple realizes Samsung’s nightmare as iPhone 7 goes up in flames. Here are the details to note down.
This time around it’s not the Galaxy Note 7 battery, rather Apple’s iPhone 7 explodes and a car caught fire to a Florida man’s Jeep where the main culprit was the infamous Galaxy Note 7. In a similar fashion what happened with the Note7 phones, now that the iPhone 7 has already had more than a couple of cases of fires after activation. Those few more reports on fires and Apple is also facing the same problem that the South Korean electronics did with its last Note series, requiring a worldwide recall.
How it happened? A surfer from Australia, Mat Jones left his phone under a bench of clothes in his car while he went to take a surfing lesson. Just after his return, he found his car filled with smoke and those clothes which he covered the phone also were on fire. As per the reports, the heated phone ignited and smoked the interior to a crisp.
He is pretty sure that the fire was caused due to the iPhone 7 and claims that there’s no other device or source for it happened. The iPhone 7 was sitting under the clothes, and in car parked at the beach, is totally possible that the heat building up in the automobile began to warm the phone up, speeding up the ignition process, and with plenty of fuel to burn, the poor surfer’s clothes.
Advised not to let your device overheat, and identify do NOT charge it on your bed near a pillow. Phones can even get really hot if they are charging and end up under a pillow.
According to the news channel, Apple is aware of that incident and will investigate the events that led to the phone’s ignition, that would determine whether or not the incident was caused by a defective iPhone. Currently, the Surf instructor is left with no phone, or car, which was badly damaged during the fire.
With caution, beware of your faulty iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus, and not only that any mobile you’re carrying with you on-board.
